Italy: individuals with diabetes 2010-2017

Number of individuals suffering from diabetes in Italy from 2010 to 2017 (in 1,000 people)

by Statista Research Department, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Italy: individuals with diabetes 2010-2017 In 2017, roughly 3.4 thousand Italians suffered from diabetes mellitus. This was an increase compared to 2010, when 2,923 individuals were affected by this disease. The number of cases grew remarkably between 2011 and 2012, before gradually decreasing until 2016. However, in 2017 the number of people affected by this health condition reached a peak.  
Epidemiology of diabetes mellitus

The number of cases was inversely related to the age of patients. As a matter of fact, diabetes was much more common among old people than among younger individuals . In 2017, 958 people aged 65 to 74 years and 1,346 aged 75 years and older were affected by diabetes mellitus in Italy. Diabetes was more widespread among women than among men. Also, the number of females who died because of diabetes mellitus was much higher than the number of males.

Drugs to treat diabetes

In Italy, the sales value of drugs used to treat diabetes increased from 553.1 million euros in 2011 to 737.6 million euros in 2017. Insulin – with a market share of 48.4 percent in 2016 – was the type of medication mainly used to treat diabetes.
